More great wine from Mallorca!!!
As my wine diary continues I must let you know about another wonderful Bodega in the island of Mallorca.
Having travelled by car from Palma (the Capital) to the beautiful town Validemossa, which I have to say is well worth a visit, we took the scenic road then towards Port Andratx/Andratx and arrived in the attractive town of Banyalbufar which is equally worth a visit too. Once through the town we arrived at a vineyard/bodega named Son Vives.
We met with Tony the proprietor who is a passionate ‘wine man’. It was a hot day and we favoured tasting chilled whites. Two very clean, crisp wines were on offer one made from 100% Malvasia the local grape which we enjoyed………. but our ‘pick of the bunch’ was the ‘Fusio De Blancs’ which was 65% Malvasia grape and 35% Chardonnay grape.
This wine really was quaffable and we would seriously recommend anyone making the same tremendously scenic journey to stop off and enjoy a glass or two with Tony and the team at Son Vives. We will be venturing back to try their reds this autumn and will be bringing a bottle or two back for our wine lovers to enjoy at the Bulls Head.
